  • Saffiano leather

    Originally developed by an Italian Tannery for a famous Italian Luxury brand, Saffiano leather is now widely used in the fashion industry. It was originally created using the highest quality full grain calf leather. The name Saffiano comes from the cross hatch print that was pressed into the wax that coated the leather. It is water-resistant. Today many split leathers are commonly used, but not by us. Our premium full grain leather comes from Gemini 77 in Abruzzo. After selection, Gemini then applies the wax coating cross hatch print, meaning that our Saffiano stays true to the original production process.

  • Fully lined in our "Marche Blue" cotton twill
  • Italian hand made nickel free hardware


Seek advise from an expert before attempting anything yourself.
Protect your bag against water and dirt with a protective silicon free guard. Repeat this regularly to avoid having to clean your bag. If you do have to clean use a damp cloth to carefully remove dirt. Cleaning is an irreversible process and therefore, thorough consideration should be made before any such attempt. 
Avoid contact with water, heat, perfume and cleaning agent. A characteristic of the organic cotton canvas is that it will age and also fade with time and prolonged exposure to sunlight. Best stored in a dust bag when not in use.
